Safety Net is a charity that provides training and support for community groups around safeguarding.
They run safeguarding training for community groups, and offer support with developing safeguarding policies. You can arrange a one-to-one session to write a safeguarding policy. This costs £30 for small groups.
They offer a DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) application service.
They run a free monthly DBS advice surgery for groups that are members of Community Works, on the first Thursday of every month. You need to book a half-hour slot in advance. If you are using Safety Net for your DBS applications, you can also bring forms and ID documents for checking at the surgery.
